In Malawi an estimated 560,000 children have lost their parents to AIDS, and each village community often supports over a hundred of these orphaned and vulnerable children. By volunteering and joining this project you can help these children get a better start in life. This project also offers the chance to relax on the shores of Lake Malawi, soaking up the sun next to the crystal waters.
Your project work will help to provide food, shelter and education for orphans and vulnerable children as you construct and renovate crumbling classrooms and feeding centres - mixing cement, laying mud bricks, plastering and carrying water with the local community. You will also have the opportunity to help in the feeding centres, preparing food and playing with the kids. You'll be surrounded by shy smiles and big hugs! The beauty of this project is the opportunity to experience the generosity of a Malawian welcome, work side-by-side with local youth groups and immerse yourself in rural Malawian life.
The work is hard on this project, but there is also the odd weekend off! Relax and embrace a slower pace of life next to the clear blue waters of Lake Malawi before enjoying a fresh BBQ and cold beer watching the famous Malawian sunset.
Spend one month volunteering with the orphaned and vulnerable children of Pensulo. Work closely with rural communities and help develop and improve living conditions for Malawian children and their families. Includes a relaxing weekend break, relaxing and enjoying the sun by the crystal clear waters of beautiful Lake Malawi.
